From the Siskiyou News 21 June 1949:


SON RETRACES FATHER'S FOOTSTEPS TO MINING CLAIMS CENTRUY AGO


The trails A. A. Holcombe trod in Siskiyou county 99 years ago in search of gold today are being trode by his son, following in his father's footsteps to visit the scenes mentioned in the elder Holcombe's diary.


A. S. Holcombe, 79, Mill Valley, Calif., came through Yreka recently searching out places like Humbug, McCay, Diggings, McAdams Creek, Black Gulch, Chimney Gulch, Fall River, Hawkinsville and Outhouse Creek.


They are names familiar to him, familiar because of the extensive diary his father kept during the wanderings in Siskiyou from 1850 to 1856.


There is no doubt it is an authentic diary, because some of Holcombe's early-day acquaintances were the parents and grandparents of present-day residents of Siskiyou.


Several Yrekans accompanied the younger Holcombe in seeking out his father's mining claim on Humbug Creek, changed by dredger and time. All were eager to help the visitor in his quest.


The claim was listed in the diary as "Holcombe Place Claim," but it doesn't say how long he operated the claim, but from indications in the journal of daily happenings it is apparent he worked it off and on until he returned east in 1856.


On Aug. 1, 1850, Holcobme noted in his journal he was taking $10 out of each pan, which points out the terrific wealth taken from the Humbug grounds by all the miners.


The book contains a reference to the formation of a vigilante committee in July, 1856, and on the same day-July 6-they ran out 20 prostitutes.


Justice was just as short for murderers in 1856.


"Saw Sam Crowder executed for killing Jim Blunt," the diary reads, and adds, "3,000 people turned out for the execution."


Fifteen days later Holcombe left Yreka and did not return.


The younger Holcombe failed to bring an earlier diary to Yreka with him. The diary he did bring dealt mainly with 1856, the last year his father was in Siskiyou County and Yreka.


The prior journal tells of the years before 1856.


A.S. Holcomb recalls some of the entries as reading his father "and company" built a water ditch at Humbug in 1850 and in another instance said, "attended meeting at Van Wyck's saloon and raised money to finish big ditch."


There are numerous references to antelope and deer hunting trips to Table Rock, which the younger Holcombe believes refers to the section now known as the Hart Ranch in Little Shasta.


At one period the father went to Albany, Ore., where he taught school and settled on a piece of land. The cabin he built and lived in has been preserved by Oregon as a monument to the early-day pioneers.


Holcombe traded off his house eventually for 40 acres of land adjacent to a little town called Portland. But this he finally sold and returned to Yreka. The property is now is a fair sized slice of the big city of Portland.


The pioneer gold-seeker mentions such names as Jacob B. Fairchild, Clark Ainsworth, George Sommers, Dr. W. C. Seaver, Mary Elder, Dave Young, Merritt Sherman, Billy Wood, Orin Root, Charlie Lovell, Rev. Mr. Stratton, Mr. Orr, Alex Abbott, James Davis and John Gallager.


The elder Holcomb apparently moved into Yreka in 1855, because there is a reference concerning the sale of his blacksmith shop to a Mr. Brooks on Jan. 18, 1856.


On April 17, 1856, there is the noting of the "announcement has come that England has declared war against our government," and on Nov. 4, just before he left Yreka, he wrote that Fremont has been elected president.


On Nov. 15, 1856, at 8 a.m. he left by stage for Callahan. Stayed overnight after 40 miles but got no sleep. Such a spree as they had.


From there he went to Robinson's, Old Shasta and Sacramento. At Sacramento he boarded a river steamer for San Francisco and went around the horn to New York.


At New York Holcombe went by rail to Chicago, where he married Jan Ann Goodsell of French Canadian descent.


For the second time Holcombe crossed the plains, this time in 1858 with his bride of only a short time. The over-country trek ended at Susanville, where Holcombe built the first hotel.


It was at Susanville where the Holcombes were blessed with two daughters and a son. A short time later, the family sold out the hotel and moved to Old Shasta where another daughter was born.


Finally, Holcombe moved to Modoc Valley, now known as Surprise Valley, and set up a trading post at a point about half way between Reno and Surprise Valley.


When Indians struck in 1860 and burned out the trading post, Holcombe moved again. He bought land at Lake City in Modoc County and there A. S. Holcombe was born in 1870. He was the youngest of all their children.


The elder Holcombe served in many companies of volunteers and fought in various Indian wars.


In 1882 he went up to Ketchum Woodriver, Idaho, on a mining trip and liked Idaho so much that in 1883 he moved his family to Caldwell. Catchum Woodriver now is known as Sun Valley, Ida., famed resort.


At Caldwell, Holcombe built the first house and worked on the Oregon Short Line, a railroad operating between Portland and Omaha. The father died at Caldwell at the age of 82.


The son who is following in his father's footsteps has been kept busy during his lifetime in various enterprises and mining. He now is retired and maintains a home in San Francisco as well as in Mill Valley.


from an unidentified newspaper:


A.A. Holcombe, for many years a resident of Nampa, was instantly killed in a runaway accident on Fourteenth avenue Friday afternoon at 5 o'clock. Deceased was 80 years and 11 months old.


Mr. Holcomb and his son, Albert S. Holcomb, were driving to their home in the south part of the city when the horse became frightened at a boy running along the sidewalk and became unmanageable. Albert Holcomb in an effort to gain control of the frightened animal jumped from the buggy to the ground with the lines in his hands, but was jerked from his feet and dragged over 40 rods in the rough road before he became exhausted and was compelled to let go of the lines.


The horse continued to run and turning a corner crossed the street diagonally and started across the sidewalk. The buggy struck a tree and the impact of the sudden stop threw its aged occupant to the ground with great force, he lighting on his head and shoulders in a clump of weeds.


Allen Orr, who was driving a delivery wagon for the Nampa Hardware store, made an attempt to catch the lines of the rig as it passed him but was unsuccessful. He was within ten feet of the rig when Mr. Holcomb was thrown out and was the first to reach the injured man.


Mr. Holcomb never uttered a word or groan and expired after a few gasps when he had been carried to the home of W. M. Shepherd. Dr. Murray was called, but arrived after the death of the injured man. The physician pronounced death due to concussion of the brain.


The late A. A. Holcomb was born at Darien, Genesse county, New York on the second day of January, 1829. When he was a boy he went to Iowa with his parents. In 1850 he crossed the plains to San Francisco. In 1883 he came to this state and resided for a good many years at Caldwell. About nine years ago he came to live in Nampa and united with the First Presbyterian church in 1903.


He leaves a wife, two sons and three daughters. One daughter, Mrs. Wilkinson is also a resident of Nampa and the other daughters are in California.


The funeral was from the Presbyterian church, the services being conducted by Rev. Mr. Colvin. A very large number of people turned out, the church being filled to overflowing.


Mr. Holcomb lived a simple, beautiful life, was a good husband, father, and citizen; he was faithful to his religious profession and a regular attendant on the services of the church. Though of advanced age he was vigorous and active and on the Sabbath before his death he was at church, walking all the way.


from the Nampa Record, Dec 17, 1909:


Mr. Holcomb was one of the oldest of the pioneers of this section. Had he lived until January 2, 1910, he would have been 81 years of age. Though having arrived at that extreme age he was well and hearty. He was unusually strong and one seldom sees a more robust man of that age. All who knew him would declare him to have been bood for 20 years more.


The sad accident came as a shock to the entire community, many of the older resident people of the city having known Mr. Holcomb almost since the town was started.


Of the pioneers, few have had experiences wider in range, and few have seen more of the wild and wooly wes than he. His career has been 'westward ho' since he was old enought to recognize the all of the West. In early manhood he went from New York state to Illinois, learning much of the early history of the middle west as well as of the far west. When the gold strike of California was alluring people to the far west he was among the first to go and he arrived at San Francisco in 1850. He mined throughout the State for a number o fyears and made a trip back across the plains for the girl of boyhood days and with her he made the second trip to California.


To them six children were born, five of whom are now living. Mrs. Clara Wilkinson, of Nampa, is the oldest daughter. Two daughters, Mrms. Ida Rinn and Mrs. Mary Marswick are in San Jose, California. Fred G. Holcomb, the oldest son, resides in Butte, Mont., and the youngest son, Albert S., is in Nampa and was with the father with the accident occurred.


The family lived for nearly 20 years in Surprise valley, California, where Mr. Holcomb is well known to all the told timers. They moved to Caldwell in 1883 and to Nampa about 10 years ago. His first wife and the mother of the six children died at Fort Bidwell, California.


The second wife, now aged 77, is here and the sad accident is almost more than she can bear. The deceased has been a member of the Presbyterian Church for a good many years. The funeral was conducted Sunday from the Presbyterian church at 3 p.m. Rev. Mackay officiating. Interment took place at Kohlerlawn. Mr. Holcomb had written an interesting history of his live and of hte pioneer days of the West. He had taken a great deal of time in preparing it, but it was not quite finished. We have been promised the story and it will later appear in the Record.


Christina was enumerated in the 1910 South Nampa, Canyon Co., ID, federal census. In the household was daughter Lena Setzer and two grandchildren, apparently family from her first marriage. Also enumerated was widowed daughter Clara Wilkinson, age 51 and her daughter Mabel.

During the winter he worked in the lumber camps in Wisconsin getting large quantities of logs ready to make into rafts to float down the river when the ice went out. Sometimes he would make the trip downstream and into the Mississippi river to the riber Towns where the big saw mills were. Muscatine, Iowa is one of the towns the rafts were delivered to. To pass the time, Milo and others on the raft did a lot of swimming and on many occasions would let the raft get nearly out of sight down the river and then swim and catch up with it. When they tied the raft at the shore for the night, lines were baited and set in the river to catch fish for the next day's meal. he liked to tell abaout the time he was unable to find any bait on shore, and was able to catch a mouse on the raft and using that for bait he caught a very large catfish for the next day's dinner.
